Potato Casserole and New Peas (Gluten, Dairy, and Corn Free)

"More, Please"

“More, Please”

Mondays are supposed to be meatless around here but I couldn’t resist adding a little bacon to this recipe. There were no leftovers.

Potato Casserole and New Peas

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 9x13 casserole pan


  • 2 quarts of mashed potatoes
  • 3 eggs
  • salt
  • handful of fresh parsley
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • small onion


  1. Slice the bacon into little strips (lardons) and fry until crisp
  2. Dice the onion and fry with the bacon
  3. Dump the potatoes into a bowl and add the bacon and onion
  4. Chop the parsley and add to potatoes
  5. Add salt to taste (the bacon doesn't add as much as you would think)
  6. Separate the eggs and add the yolks to the potatoes
  7. Mix well
  8. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form
  9. Fold into the potato mixture
  10. Carefully spread into a greased 9x13 glass pan and bake at 400 until browned

Since the peas have finally started producing we had new peas (mostly snow peas) as a side dish.

  • As many new peas as you think will be eaten in one meal

  2. Heat an iron skillet with bacon grease or a little oil (basically enough to cover the bottom of the pan)
  3. Pour in the peas
  4. Stir over high heat until tender and lightly browned in places
  5. Sprinkle with salt and enjoy!

This was all that was left! S and I only had one serving each!

Nothing left!

    Ok. My mouth is watering. Phil’s not huge on snow peas, but the potatoes would go over well!
    I’ve got a bunch of Italian sausage and did a soup the other night using that, potatoes, tomatoes, white beans, etc. I was looking for a S&K flair without cayenne (think baby), but, though I think you would have approved and it was amazing, I didn’t manage to exactly hit the mark in my attempt to make it taste like your distinctive cuisine. You people really are gifted. 🙂

    PS. Is that a teething necklace on Jack? I’m curious about your thoughts on the subject.

      Yes, it is. I know someone who makes them- for $10 so I figured it was worth it. And I have had much less need to give tylenol for teething with him. On the other hand some children teeth pretty easily and some teeth hard so I’m not sure if it’s him or the necklace. I need a few more children’s worth of evidence I guess! :-)…K
